An Irishman goes into the confessional box after years of being away from the Church.
As he steps in, hes struck dumb: Theres a fully equipped bar with Guinness on tap. On the other wall holds a dazzling array of the finest cigars and chocolates.
Then he hears the door on the other side open and the priest comes in.
"Father, forgive me," he says, "for its been a very long time since Ive been to confession. But I must first admit that the confessional box is much more inviting than it used to be!"
"Get out you fool!" the priest hisses. "Youre on my side!"
